Prescription eyeglasses are a necessity among many people, and also are costly items that need to be maintained properly. Eyeglass lenses are fragile, scratch easily when left uncared for, and quickly develop spots and smudges. Saline drops often dry onto the eyeglass lenses, leaving you with unattractive and annoying spots that block a clear view through the glasses. Luckily, you can remove the spots easily.

Things You'll Need

  • Lens cleaning solution or mild soap
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Water

Video of the Day

Moisten the edge of a microfiber cloth with water.

Rub the glass lenses with the damp cloth, using small, firm circular motions. The microfiber is soft and lint-free, meaning it will not scratch or leave lint particles on the glasses.

Dip the moist side of the cloth in lens cleaning solution, or a mild soap such as hand soap or dish soap.

Rub the soap over the spots until all saline residue has been removed.

Rinse the edge of the cloth with fresh water, and wipe over the lenses once more to remove the soap residue.

Wipe the glasses dry with a clean, dry side of the microfiber cloth to remove moisture and prevent streaks or new water spots from forming.
